Nadia Tzimerman is a Ph.D. fellow at the Zvi Meitar Center for Advanced Legal Studies, as well as an Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics fellow at Tel-Aviv University. Her dissertation, written under the supervision of Prof. Issachar (Issi) Rosen-Zvi and Dr. David Schorr, has two aims: It establishes a theoretical framework for the justification of public ownership of natural resources, and it analyzes the origins and the evolution of the Israeli Petroleum Act of 1952 based on this theoretical framework. Nadia’s research initial findings were published in an article, co-written with Dr. Yair Sagy, entitled "This is Not the Way!: On the Sources of Section 33 of the Petroleum Act". The article was cited twice by the Supreme Court of Israel (H.C 4491/13 and H.C 4374/15).
Nadia received her Master of Laws (LL.M) from Harvard Law School in 2008 after completing an LL.B (summa cum laude) and a B.A. in Economics at the University of Haifa. After graduation at Harvard, Nadia took up a position as a consultant for the Doing Business Project at the World Bank in Washington DC. In 2011 Nadia founded the Marine Resources, Law and Policy Legal Clinic at the University of Haifa and directed it for seven years.
